Bianca Andreescu wins U.S. Open in straight sets

Bianca Andreescu first kissed the surface, then laid down on the court, amazed she’d beaten Serena Williams in the U.S. Open women’s singles finals match. It’s the first Grand Slam title for the Canadian tennis player. Andreesscu is the first Canadian to win a major tennis tournament and the first teen to win the U.S. Open since 2006. Andreescu apologized to the crowd in Arthur Ashe stadium for beating Williams. The nineteen-year-old beat the 37-year-old in straight sets, 6-3, 7-5. It could have been history for Serena Williams. She is one tournament win away from matching the record set by Margaret Court. Court has 24 Grand Slam titles, Williams has 23. Williams was gracious in her loss, thanking the noisy New York fans for their support. She had one extra special guest in the stands for the match, the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle. Andreescu didn’t qualify for the U.S. Open last year. She says that her team helped her get over injuries and boost her confidence, hoping to keep going.
